2019 NFL Draft 7 Round ranking (+ Weekly Prospect Standouts)

Recommended Posts

Bowl game standouts 2.0

*Isaiah Simmons RS SOPH OLB Clemson:
Wow, I liked him last year and this year he has developed really nicely as a OLB.  If he can do that consistently in coverage he will be a very wanted OLB I feel.  What a great looking athlete, getting better and better at the position and with that type of coverage range he is a really promising young player.  Really played well in this game, will see how he does against Alabama, only issue is getting off blocks but in coverage for a linebacker he is special potentially.  

 

*Kyler Murray RS JR QB Oklahoma:
What a show he put on despite being a smaller QB going up against that dominating Bama defensive line.  Kid is probably the best run and pass QB combo in the history of college football but his small sample size might take him down a notch in terms of college football history only really played well for one season.  But kid is super quick and has such a great arm, helps playing in that innovative offense for Oklahoma as well.  Only player similar in terms of size and quickness at QB I feel was Antwaan Randle El, mind you Randle El played in a different more physical time and was surrounded by much less talent than what Murray works with.  Still Murray if it is his last football game, what a performance he put out there against Bama.

 

*Joshua Jacobs JR RB Alabama:
Awesome game by him, really showed just how athletic he is as a back and how complete he is as a football player.  Motivated to play against his home state school, he put on a show for sure and that is impressive considering the other talent on that Alabama roster at RB.  But Jacobs is a big time RB prospect and could be drafted highly even if he came out this year because of his ability to do a variety of things, block and catch the ball out of the backfield.  

 

*Brock Purdy FR QB Iowa State:
Impressive play by him, nice showing for the true freshman.  Good arm talent, poised and controlled QB with a good calmness to him.  Will be one to watch next year for sure.

 

*Greg Ellsworth RS SOPH S  Iowa State:
Love his quickness and speed at safety, mentioned him earlier this year.  Is a tough football player and aggressive in the box and in coverage.  Nice looking talent who could be a riser next yera

 

*Chauncey Gardner-Johnson JR S Florida:
Great game by him, a lot of big time interceptions and he helped show even more why he is one of the best safeties in the up coming draft.  Still not sure if he is a pure 1st rounder but as a 2nd round pick could be very solid.  Really is comfortable in coverage and has been a consistent playmaker for awhile.

 

*Tua Tagovailoa SOPH QB Alabama:
Just dropping dimes out there, what great accuracy he showed that is for sure.  Made some insanely tight window throws in that game. Looked like a completely different player with a healthy ankle, will see how he does in the Title game.

 

*CeeDee Lamb SOPH WR Oklahoma:
Just abused a good young corner in Surtain, really was the one true WR weapon they had with Brown being injured in that game.  Big time prospect and will be a potential 1st rounder in 2020 no question.  

 

*Hakeem Butler RS JR WR Iowa State:
Dominating game by him, showed he is a big time athlete and has done that all season long.  Just a big physical target who is a damn good athlete, should be a solid 2nd round pick come draft time and maybe 1st rounder if he times well and works out well.  

 

*David Montgomery JR RB Iowa State:
Showed why he is one of the best RBs in the nation, fine game by him and showed he is a complete back.  Great inbetween the tackles and is hard to bring down, could easily come out for the draft and be one of the top 5 backs taken potentially.  

 

*Justyn Ross FR WR Clemson:
What a game by him, really stood out and showed he is a big time athlete and receiving threat.  Was taking advantage of some backup Notre Dame corners, will see how he does against Alabama in the title game.

 

*Daniel Jones RS JR QB Duke:
Great game by him, too bad he did not play like that all season long.  Has such a good frame and arm talent, good fundamental kid with a lot of upside.  Nice to see him perform on a big stage and dominate the game from the QB position.

 

*Martez Ivey SR OG/OT Florida:
Had a good game, made some crushing blocks and really pushed guys around at times.  I still feel he is best as a OG, would just be more comfortable there but will see, could play RT maybe.  Has big time potential though and could be a late 1st round pick no question.

 

*Dru Samia SR OG Oklahoma:
Hard to not be impressed with the toughness he showed in that game.  Sure he had some penalties because of it but was tough and physical and that helped spark that team I feel.  Very good guard and should be a solid 2nd or 3rd round pick maybe.

 

*Jamal Custis RS SR WR Syracuse:
Dominating game by him, showed just how elite of an athlete he is.  Just huge length and good speed, strong as well should be a fine mid to late round pickup.

 

*AJ Terrell SOPH CB Clemson: Is a big time corner prospect, said that already earlier in the year but kid is a fine athlete, very comfortable in coverage and has that second gear athletically to make things happen.  

 

*Jack Allison RS SOPH West Virginia:
Did not have a great game but considering the situation did well.  Has great height and a really live arm, will see if he can continue to develop and work on his pocket mobility and awareness.  Sure does have a live arm, oddly enough he used to be at Miami, they sure could have used him this year that is for sure at QB.  Could be the starter for WV next year with that type of arm talent.

 

*Curtis Bolton RS SR LB Oklahoma:
Have noticed him a few times this year, in this game he gave really great effort I thought.  A very undersized linebacker but brought some energy and toughness to the game and plays bigger than he is.  Maybe a chance to be a late round pick but it is a long shot, still nice showing for his last game as a RS SR.

 

*Juan Thornhill SR S Virginia:
Have liked him all year and nice to see him go out playing so well.  Is such a playmaker and is easily one of the best safeties in the draft, made tackles behind the line, plays on the ball in coverage and even a nice INT in that game.  All around safety and solid 2nd round draft pick or at best late 1st.

 

*Xavier McKinney SOPH S Alabama:
Played great in coverage and was all over the place making plays back there.  Still would like to see more of him as a tackler but for what he is asked to do he has done well.  Could develop into a nice player in a year or two.

 

*Marcus Strong JR CB Washington State:
Had a great game for them, made a ton of plays, had that pick 6 that was called back but still the kid was physical and showed good pass coverage skills.  Will be one to watch out for next season.  

 

*Grant Calcaterra SOPH TE Oklahoma:
Great looking athlete, really nice speed and athletic ability at TE.  Could become a big time weapon next year but will see, has some upside to him that is for sure.  

 

*Willie Taylor RS FR OLB Washington State:
Need to watch more of him but looks like a long athletic playmaker at linebacker, rare for that defense but fits Claeys system well possibly.  Might be in the mold of DeVontre Campbell of a long athletic some what thin linebacker who Claeys coached at Minnesota.  Will see how Taylor develops next year and if he can become more of a consistent playmaker.

 

 

 

Others who impressed:

Austin Seibert SR K/P Oklahoma  
Moe Neal JR RB Syracuse
Kendall Coleman JR DE Syracuse
Darius Slayton RS JR  WR Auburn    
Liam Eichenberg JR OT Notre Dame
Aaron Banks SOPH OG Notre Dame 
Anthony Schwartz FR WR Auburn

Updated the 7 round mock today on the front page.  I have not updated it in a month after doing it almost weekly at times during the season.  Most probably did not even know it was changed and updated that often, hard to keep track of and crazy the amount of moving parts in it all moving and taking players off.   Mind you no team needs are included it is just a basic attempt at ranking them all. Tried to include all the current underclassmen but do have some who have not declared yet included as well.

 

Biggest risers since the start of the season:

Quinnen Williams
Darrell Henderson
Jace Sternberger
Justin Hollins
Juan Thornhill
Jawaan Taylor
Sione Takitaki
Dru Samia
Gerald Willis III
Germaine Pratt
Trevon Tate

 

 

Biggest drops since the start of the season:

Bryce Love
Deebo Samuel
Terry Beckner Jr
David Edwards
AJ Brown
Drew Lock

 

The biggest surprise easily was Love, I had very high expectations for him.  Still could be a good back but just seems so frail out there and is not nearly as explosive as he used to be.  AJ Brown is another I thought could be a high 1st rounder, still is a good player but some other WRs have passed him this year, same with Lock.  And David Edwards better go back to school he struggled this year and needs some more work.

Currently is around 80 or so, sure there will be 20-30 more to declared potentially...

 

 

 

They might want to remember this in 2017 that 28 of 95 went undrafted.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000804666/article/2017-nfl-draft-28-of-95-early-entry-prospects-go-undrafted

Ricky Seals-Jones is the only one on that list who is even relevant as far as I know, and he was a very talented player in college but just underachieved and had to change positions in the NFL.

 

Then in 2018 it was 37 of 106 went undrafted

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000928840/article/2018-nfl-draft-37-early-entry-underclassmen-go-undrafted

That list a little better where some players have seen some time and got on rosters, Holton Hill, JC Jackson, Josh Adams, Deontay Burnett, Kevin Toliver, Kyle Allen etc.

 

 

Still do these kids not know that being undrafted is totally a thing, and it happens constantly of course.  Some of these players who declared have no business coming out early.   Do they know that being a 2nd or 3rd round pick is better than being a 7th round pick of a UDFA?  Many I feel could work their way up but I guess they just want a chance, here you go, and many will go not selected.  Would be curious why the choices and what type of information they got from the NFL or did they just ignore it.  Hell look around this forum and one could find out who are the hot names as prospect and who are not getting much buzz.

Bowl game standouts 3.0

*Benny Snell Jr JR RB Kentucky:
What a show he put on, such an energetic kid, great leader and passionate football player.  You can see he loves the University and loves to play football.  Physical runner obviously who can put a team on his back and carry them.  Is very old school in that regard but well worth a 1st round pick I think and if not should be a steal 2nd rounder.  Great season by him in a historic one for that programs history, goes out now as the schools all time leading rusher as a JR.  

 

*Chase Young SOPH DE Ohio State:
What a dominating game by him, kid just blew off the edge and made a solid OT prospect in Adams look bad more than once.  He also showed a ton of versatility dropping back in pass coverage showing off his overall athletic ability and speed.  Has had a great season and got a lot better as an overall player since Bosa has been out.  A lot more well rounded and productive outside of just speed rushes and using his athletic ability.  Has a huge upside with how great of athlete he is and if he continues this progress no doubt will be a top 5 pick in next years draft.

 

*Josh Allen SR OLB Kentucky:
Another super star football player, have liked him for a long time and great to see him go out with such a bang.  Long lean athlete, has gotten so much better this year and has some much upside, great size height and could play DE, 3/4 OLB or 4/3 OLB or maybe even 3/4 ILB.  Is a great football player and might have even played his way into being a top 10 pick, will see how well he works out because on field he is a great looking athlete.  Dominated this football game and it was awesome to see a top player actually play in his bowl game.

 

*Erik McCoy RS JR C Texas A&M:
Awesome game by him, mentioned him a little earlier in the year and the more I watch him the more I like him.  Very athletic center who moves really well in space, good strength and agility for sure.  If he comes back for another year will be one of the best centers in the nation no question I feel.

 

*Gary Johnson SR OLB Texas:
I love his ability as a football player, is just a bullet out there at linebacker, can run so fast and is such a strong athlete.  Great in space and comes down hill really well, could maybe even be a 3/4 ILB in the right system and be a blitzing nightmare.  I think he will be a solid 2nd rounder, thought he could maybe even come out early last year but this year he has shown what he can do more and has been more consistent.  Nice looking speed linebacker that is for sure no doubt about it. 

 

*Chuba Hubbard RS FR RB Ok State:
So fun to watch him run, what a show he put on, just glides out there running the football and they did not miss Justice Hill one bit.  Very impressive player, mentioned him earlier this year for flashing a little and he is just exciting to watch run the football.  Will be fun to watch him next year and see how he does.

 

*Terry McLaurin SR WR Ohio State:
Amazing special teams play by him, made multiple tackles in punt coverage and that ability alone makes him a valuable player come draft time.  Has a nice physical frame for a WR, productive player who could be a good 4th or 5th WR for a team.  Has had a great year and good to go out ontop for the SR captain along with his other two SR captain teammates.

 

*Lynn Bowden Jr SOPH WR Kentucky:
What a special return man he has shown to be this year, just a dynamic player back there and can make some big time plays.  Would benefit from some better QB play but as a WR and playmaker he is a big time prospect and could become a very good one, but simply put his return ability makes him something special I feel. 

 

*Jeffery Simmons JR DT Miss State:
Tough physical game by him, sadly for those seniors it ended in a loss.  Too bad the offense was not up to par with the defense they could have accomplished a lot more this season.  Simmons got to love his effort no doubt and I feel he could be a good 3/4 DE as well with his ability to stop the run, 1st round pick all the way.

 

*Sam Ehlinger SOPH QB Texas:
Great game by him in a huge win for the program, is as tough as they come.  The Tebow comparisons I do not really care for because he is not as physically powerful as Tebow and he is a better passer than Tebow was.  Still has to improve in that though, if he does he could for sure be one of the elite QBs in the nation.

 

*AJ Epenesa SOPH DE Iowa:
Dominated on the edge especially that 1st half, they just could not handle his speed and quickness around the corner.  Like him last year and he is even better this season, for sure could be a potential high draft pick come 2020.  

 

*Jake Gervase SR S Iowa:
Great game by the senior and was a huge part of the victory, made some key pass breakups late and showed good anticipation and toughness.  Has been a consistent player for a few years now, is a nice safety prospect and should be a good mid to late round prospect.

 

*Trayveon Williams JR RB Texas A&M:
Has really taken his game to the next level this season and it showed up big time in this game, just ran all over NC State.  Showed off big time speed and toughness between the tackles.  Has been really consistent all year and will be interesting to see where he goes come draft time, great performance by him on a dominating win from that program. 

 

*Trace McSorley RS SR QB Penn State:
Still an outside shot at being drafted but hard to not be impressed with his leadership in this game, especially with him being injured basically the entire 2nd half limping around.  Big time performance by him and a great effort for his last game, would be hard to pass him up in the 7th round of the draft with the type of intangible leadership he displayed.  Oh and he made some great throws as well on the move, that helped.

 

*Josiah Scott SOPH CB Michigan State:
Showed up big time in this bowl game, really active with his hands and fighting for the football.  Still has a long ways to go but impressed in this one, will see how he does next year. 

 

*TJ Hockenson RS SOPH TE Iowa:
Did not play well in this game but did show what he can do as a blocker, and in his run after the catch ability is as good as any TE, especially if one considers how he can break tackles and run after contact.  That all around ability for sure is an impressive trait, could maybe be a 1st rounder if he comes out this year but for sure will be one if he waits for next season.  

 

*Brendon White SOPH S Ohio State:
Was a solid safety back there and has helped improve that Ohio State defense for sure, will see how he looks next year he has some promise.

 

*Pat Freiermuth FR TE Penn State:
Is a monster TE, such a big strong athlete who can make plays down field, will see how he does next year with a new QB.  Is one heck of a weapon and if he keeps improving and getting better could be a heck of a player down the road.

 

*Andrew Beck RS SR TE Texas:
I just love his versatility as a blocker, not the best pass catcher and not the biggest guy but moves well and is more than willing to be a physical blocker.  Could be a fine pickup late I feel just on his blocking potential alone.

 

*Andre Baccellia JR WR Washington:
Showed some big time quickness and agility in this game, was hard for them to get him the ball but when he got it he made things happen.  Could become a pretty solid receiver next year with a little more work, also will help with a new QB who might open up the offense a little bit.

 

*BJ Foster FR S Texas:
Will be one to watch next year, showed up physically at safety and was a big hitter at times.  Good size and speed, quite a duo back there with Sterns and Foster next season.  Foster sure showed up with Sterns being out this game.  

 

*Davante Davis SR CB Texas:
Not a great prospect but is worth a look for his size and athletic ability as a corner.  Never was super impressed with his play this year but has upside and potential with that length.  Could maybe be a late round pick come draft time will see.

 

 

 

 

Others who impressed:

Bunchy Stallings RS SR OG Kentucky  
Amani Hooker JR S Iowa  
Charles Omenihu SR DE Texas  
Cameron Dicker FR K Texas  
Myles Gaskin SR RB Washington
Rashod Berry RS JR TE Ohio State  
Mike Weber RS JR RB Ohio State 

 

 

 

To the Seniors or players going out for the draft who played in their bowl games, to you I congratulate your courage and willingness to play for yourself and your teammates.  To not end your career with a question mark of being unfinished.

Yea I dont see Tebow either. Seems like a lazy comparison for Ehlinger. I see Dak Prescott for most of the rights and wrongs in his game.

Championship Game

*Trevor Lawrence FR QB Clemson:
What a freaking show he put on, threw the ball well and was crazy good in the pocket.  Took big hits back there at times and it did not affect him at all, seemed to bounce off of them half the time because of his solid build.  Able to take the pressure and still made big time throws down field.  Kid is huge back there and a fine looking athlete with obviously a great throwing arm.  Kid will be most likely the most hyped QB prospect to come into the NFL since Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck.  He is almost a perfect QB prospect right now in terms of upside, will see how he deals with the pressure of everyone in the world now believing he is the best QB to ever play the game and potentially a future NFL Hall of Famer.  Sure that sounds a little much but most will view him like that after a game like this, just ask Tua and he only played a little bit that season before and the expectations were massive for him.  Lawrence is probably the best FR QB I have ever seen play, is so good so early on, sure one could say Michael Vick no doubt but he was a RS FR when he did all of that.

 

*Justyn Ross FR WR Clemson:
No WR in the nation has come on stronger late in the year than Ross, these last two games especially, what a show he put on against Notre Dame and played even better against Alabama.  Made all those crazy one handed catches, shows big time size and speed combination.  Is now clearly the best freshman WR prospect in the nation.  Such a riser of late but played his best at the biggest times.   Will see if he can keep it up next year but why not, Lawrence is back, most of the OL will be back and most of the other WRs are back and Etienne.  Yeah Wow.

 

* Trayvon Mullen JR CB Clemson:
Best game he played all season I feel in terms of his playmaking back there, had that huge INT and return then a few solid tackles as well.  Very solid game by him and could be a riser come draft time if he decides to come out early.  Good to see him reaching his potential a little bit.  

 

*AJ Terrell SOPH CB Clemson:
Great game by him, I liked him a lot during the year and he just has great athletic ability and ball skills.  Confident player who if he can improve his tackling a little has the playmaking potential to be a possible 1st round pick, is easily one of the best corners in the nation coming into next year.  

 

*Isaiah Simmons RS SOPH OLB Clemson:
Have mentioned him a lot, had another good game, has such potential at OLB with that length and speed.  Can run so well and if he gets a little strong at the point of attack could be a monster out there.  Awesome season and great switch to OLB from safety, is a big time athlete as well will see if he comes out early.

 

*Christian Wilkins SR DT Clemson:
Great game by him, just on character and leadership alone he should be a high 1st round pick.  Is just a great kid and great to see him end his career ontop when he and many other guys came back to school to win a title and they did in big time fashion.  Love his motor and energy he plays the game with.

 

*Sean Pollard JR OG Clemson:
Played quite well and so did that OL, is a promising player and will see how he does next year, could be one of the best guards in the nation if he comes back and improves even more.

 

*Tanner Muse RS JR S/OLB Clemson:
I still view him as a possible OLB and a position change, might not have the chops at safety to cover but hard to not like his hitting ability and size as a safety.  Would love to see him come back more and play with less talent around him, will see what happens.  

 

*Dexter Lawrence JR DT Clemson:
Sure he did not play in that game but still Clemson made Alabama look like that and their best defensive player arguably, did not even play.  Crazy, just freaking crazy and no one is even talking about that because there is so much else to talk about with that game. 

 

  

 

 

 

 

Disappionted:

Deionte Thompson RS JR S Alabama - Terrible game by him, was out of position more than once and lost his footing and got beat.  Was regarded as the best safety coming into this game most likely, is not anymore especially with how he got beat deep and did not really impact the game much at all.  

 

Patrick Surtain Jr. FR CB Alabama - Has struggled of late especially the last few games without the pass rush helping.  Is a promising player for sure but just did not play with confidence and was slow to react when tackling and slow to react to the football in the air.  Should be much better next season but will see.  

 

Tua Tagovailoa SOPH QB Alabama - Put up a lot of stats sure but those two INTs were awful for the team and his confidence.  Was fooled and got inpatient at times, was not injury related either.  Will see how he bounces back next year, things sure are harder when one has such high expectations.  Probably good for him they are now taken back a notch.  

 

Raekwon Davis JR DE Alabama - Is he even on the field?  Would be hard to tell that based on him doing little to nothing.  Has showed up at times this year but has overall been a huge disappointment I think, not sure what that is about.  Guys is a monster athletically in terms of size for the position and power, just has to get better with his hands and get off.  Stock is dropping for him no doubt, had top 5 potential coming into the year but now would be lucky to be in the 1st round maybe.  

 

Quinnen Williams RS SOPH DT Alabama - Sure he did some things but did not dominate the game obviously and only had a few good plays.  Of late in these big games for sure he has not dominated like he did earlier in the season.  But the hype machine on him is so high right now not sure many would call this a negative for him.  Still that pass rush was missing Miller so that hurt and overall they did not get pressure enough to affect the QB.  Williams the way he plays using his hands and quickness is hard to dislike, but in terms of on the field production it has obviously fell off, he was a penetration machine and tackling machine at times earlier in the year, totally not that the last two games especially this one against Clemson.

 

Isaiah Buggs SR DE Alabama - Like he was not even on the field, not sure what has happened to him but he has really disappeared especially late this season.  Does very little in terms of pressure on the QB, his stock is dropping for sure.

 

 Saivion Smith JR CB Alabama - No big surprise, he struggled also, again ball skills were not really all that great and his reaction time was off.  Could not stay with receivers or make plays on the football.  Needs some more time for sure and more work. 

 

 

 

Note :  Yeah it is basically the entire Clemson team impressed and the entire Alabama team disappointed.  Could argue no one on defense played well, offensively Jeudy did well and Harris and Jacobs ran well but they were down so much they obviously went away from that.  Odd to say a Alabama team quit but in many ways they did.  Very odd playcalling in that game but they had chances to score and clearly did not and on defense they could not stop them outside of a few times early.  

 

Nick Saban handled himself quite well in his press conference after the game and it is no wonder why a lot of top recruits go to Alabama.  What a professional way to handle your business especially when things do not go well.

 

 

 

Updated the 7 rounds, still going to do it again obviously because the underclassmen still have a chance to declare up until the 14th of January.  Crazy the amount of players getting kicked out over the season and especially recently.  Players I thought could be drafted but new guys coming in kicked them out, I still have 20 or so underclassmen who came out not getting drafted.   Also these 7 rounds do not include many FCS prospects or really small school prospects so that probably kicks out another 50 or more as well.

Updated 7 round Mock since the underclassmen have declared on the 1st page.  Pretty crazy the depth of this draft when one looks at it from the start to now and all the players who would be out come draft time. 

 

Here are the ones I have as being out potentially who at points in the year I had being drafted players and it still could be the case will see.  I have this listed under the 7 rounds as well.  Sure tons will continue to change especially after all the pre draft work, sure hope so.   Hard to cut down some of these guys and that is not even including many smaller school prospects I have not seen, which means even more will be on their way out.

Also these two players I had as seniors eligible for the draft and having not another year left but I was wrong, they had a redshirt year in there so they come back to school for another season.  I am sure some more players I have wrongly classified with show up in the process as well.

Updated the 7 Round Mock Draft ranking after the Senior Bowl.  A few changes and moving guys around pre any combine work.  I need to see a little more of the Senior bowl but here are a few guys who impressed in the game and increases their stock a little bit potentially.

 

 

Nasir Adderly Delaware S SR: Damn impressive athlete and great to see him out there with a equal level of competition.  Looks great though, seems to have awesome range in coverage, very quick and agile and is not afraid of contract either.  Is shooting up the draft boards potentially and with a good combine could totally be in 1st round conversation but for sure now is a solid 2nd rounder I feel.

 

Andy Isabella UMASS WR SR: Loved the guy all season long and look legit even against the better competition level.  Is ideal for the NFL today with all the quick screens and short throws, he can take it and make plays downfield with his speed and quicks.  Very promising WR and should be a solid late 2nd rounder but at worst 3rd rounder and should run a blazing time at the combine most likely.

 

Drew Lock Missouri QB SR: Liked how he looked out there, was impressed with his demeanor and personality as well.  Clearly has a talented arm and is not getting the lock he probably should but could be a fine 2nd rounder.  Along with him Jones, Grier, Finley, Murray and Stidham there is potentially a ton of value in the late 1st or 2nd round at QB.  Sure they are not top of the line blue chip guys but they have a lot of potential and arm talent and each one has their own unique skill set.  Just in the Senior Bowl alone it is impressive they had Jones, Lock, Grier, Finley, Stidham, Jackson, McSorley and Minshew, that is a very deep and impressive group surprisingly enough.

 

Charles Omenihu Texas DE SR:  Liked him all year and he is such an impressive looking athlete.  Quick and can get off the snap well, super long arms and is physically so impressive.  Very interesting prospect and is a lock 2nd rounder but maybe with his play could sneak into the 1st will see.

 

Deebo Samuel South Carolina WR SR: Had kind of a down year but physically he looks the part in this game and in the practices.  Very well put together, quick and compact it is just a matter of can he stay healthy.  Because before the injury stuff he is a 1st rounder all the way and if he works out well still could maybe be that with how well he played here.  

 

Tyree Jackson Buffalo QB RS JR: Looked good out there, sure made some poor throws and had so so fundamentals in the pocket but showed off that cannon arm no doubt.  Is so huge out there and with that arm talent seems more and more like no way he slips past the 3rd round and if a team really likes he could take a risk on him even in the 2nd.  

 

Jimmy Moreland JMU CB SR: Liked his coverage ability for awhile, nice to see him play well in big time competition, should be a solid 3rd or 4th rounder I feel.  Is so smooth in coverage and has a lot of abilities as a corner that are very solid.  

 

Chuma Edoga USC OT SR: Physically he looks the part and played well I thought, good looking athlete who moves his feet well.  Could be a nice mid round pickup and a good developmental OT prospect.  

 

Iman Marshall USC CB SR: Like his aggressive play and confidence, good press cover corner who has some toughness to him as well.  Should be a 2nd or 3rd rounder potentially no doubt.  

 

 

Terry McLaurin Ohio State WR SR: Played well and is already an ace special teams guy potentially but if he can become a legit 3rd or 4th WR as well his stock will rise a lot, should be a good mid round draft pick I feel.

 

Wes Hills Stony Brook RB SR: Has been really rising, really showed in the bowl game he played before this then he got the chance here.  Tall kid but runs hard and has enough burst and slippery running style to him he can make some big plays.  Interesting mid to late round pickup potentially as a RB for sure.

 

Gary Jennings West Virginia WR SR: Solid pass catcher who has a good build and could be a steal in the mid to late rounds.  Played well late in this game and has really come on late in his career but is an effective player who has a nice build for the position.

A few players that stood out at the combine and helped increase their stock potentially based on the numbers they put out:

 

 


*DK Metcalf 4.33, 27 B, 40.5 vert, 134 broad:  At his size that is just flat our impressive, hard to get drafted just on physical athletic ability alone but he might be it this year.  Has been injured constantly in college but just on these numbers at his size he will be a 1st rounder when on the field play he probably should maybe not be.   

 

*Rashaun Gary 4.58, 38 vert, 120 broad, 4.29 shuttle: Is not a huge surprise but the kid is clearly an elite athlete and did well to show it, still question his power a little but if put on the edge he could do some damage.  

 

*Maxx Crosby 4.66, 36 vert, 122 broad, 6.89 cone, 4.13 shuttle, 11.35 L shuttle:  Amazing production for a long lean athlete, just dominated across the board and did very well.  Shows he has a lot of physical skills to work with that is no question.  

 

*Juan Thornhill 4.42. 21 B, 44 vert, 141 broad:  Have liked him for awhile and proven athletic ability here, great times for a safety and super impressive vertical with a strong bench.  

 

*Miles Boykin Notre Dame 4.42, 43.5 vert, 140 broad, 6.77 cone, 4.07 shuttle:  Amazing showing by him, another big WR and amazing quickness times for someone that large.  Powerful legs with the broad and vertical, really nice showing and climbed up to middle rounds now as a prospect with this I feel.  

 

*Anthony Nelson 4.82. 35.5 vert, 118 broad, 6.95 cone, 4.23 shuttle:  Really impressive quickness for a huge long dude, decent 40 time also for his size.  Should be a solid 2nd or 3rd rounder no question.  

 

*Garrett Bradbury 4.92, 34 B, 7.41 cone:  Very impressive athletic ability for a center, really good times he put out and surprising strength.  Will for sure be a 2nd round pick and maybe could sneak into the late 1st with what he has shown.  

 

*Andre Dillard 4.96, 118 broad, 7.44 cone, 4.40 shuttle:  Was a little on the fence with him but hard to stay there with those athletic times for such a big man, did well in a variety of events, showed great athletic ability and movement skills, fine skills for any pass protector, should be a lock 1st rounder now.  

 

*Emmanuel Hall 4.39, 43.5 vert, 141 broad:  Really nice showing, big time speed and athletic ability after playing well this season, did well for himself no doubt.

 

*Andy Isabella 4.31, 6.95 cone, 4.15 shuttle:  Glad they corrected his time, is such a big time speed WR, great quickness as well and was kind of surprised at his original 40 time when it was so low because kid is a burner.  

 

*Noah Fant 4.50, 39.5 vert, 127 broad, 6.81 cone, 4.22 shuttle, 11.49 L shuttle:  Great showing across the board and was clearly the most athletic TE there.  Big time speed which is not a big surprise, even having a so so yeah production wise still will be a 1st round pick.  

 

*Alex Barnes 4.69, 34 B, 38.5 vert, 126 broad, 6.95 Cone, 4.10 shuttle:  Great showing by him, thought of him as a UDFA but not anymore, should be a 6th or 7th round pick, crazy impressive bench number and quickness he showed.  Improving RB with athletic skills that is for sure.  

 

*Drew Lock 4.69, 31 vert, 4.12 shuttle:  Great play by him I thought throwing the football.  Was so confident out there, had a swagger about him and was very comfortable I thought.  Looked like a leader and a winner body language wise, wish he was more aggressive throwing but wanted to apparently work on his accuracy.  

 

*Devin White 4.42, 39.5 vert:  Showing that blazing speed for a thick strong linebacker, should be a top 5 pick no doubt now, tape matches his athletic ability.  

 

*Devin Bush 4.43, 40.5 vert, 124 broad:  Helped show that athletic ability and speed no doubt, more than a few teams will want him.  

 

*Tyree Jackson 4.59, 34.5 vert, 120 broad:  Blazing times for a dude that large at QB, very impressive work by him.  Throwing was a little less impressive but as a project there is a ton there and could easily be a 3rd round pick and many 2nd rounder if a team really likes him.  

 

*TJ Hockenson 4.7, 37.5 vert, 123 broad, 7.02 cone, 4.18 shuttle, 11.55 L shuttle:  Along with this teammate was dominating across the board almost, very productive in a variety of events and showed out well.  

 

*Montez Sweat 4.41, 36 vert, 125 broad, 7 cone:  Probably moves him into the 1st round, is a little stiff at times but that 3 cone is very impressive for his massive size, great explosive ability also, potential 3/4 OLB or 4/3 DE.  

 

*Ben Bangou 4.62, 23 B, 40 vert, 134 broad, 7.02 cone:  Very impressive performance, good athletic edge rusher with some burst and very good quickness.     

 

*Blake Cashman 4.50, 37.5 vert, 124 broad, 4.12 shuttle:  Very nice showing by him, good speed and athletic ability as a OLB no doubt.  

 

*Drue Tranquill 4.57, 31 B, 37.5, 4.14 shuttle:  Awesome bench number and good solid speed, great OLB prospect especially with his safety skills in coverage.

 

*Justin Hollins 4.50, 25 B, 36.5 vert, 7.06 cone:  Not a big surprise, is such a long lean athlete and proved that no doubt.  

 

*Parris Campbell 4.31, 40 vert, 135 broad, 4.03 shuttle:  Many thought he would do well and did, awesome speed and power, really has some great burst to him which is no real big surprise, nice for him to prove it at the combine.  

 

*Sutton Smith 4.69, 25 B, 6.75 cone:  Happy with those times, his quickness is not surprise, has such a burst and can change direction, could be a very good pass rusher in a 3/4 OLB spot possibly, showed good strength also.  

 

*Brian Burns 4.53, 36 vert, 129 broad, 7.01 cone:  For his size great showing and proves a little bit that he can play in a 3/4 OLB spot with that very impressive speed.  

 

*Justice Hill 4.4, 21 B, 40 vert, 130 broad:  Super good numbers for him, helped show his big time speed and athletic ability.  Still has some work to do with his game but nice showing for him no doubt.   

 

*Jamel Dean 4.30, 41 vert:  Blazing time by him, that is a surprise.  With his size as a corner could totally be a late round pick and probably moved up a few rounds with that kind of speed.

 

*Marvell Tell 42 vert, 136 broad, 6.63 cone, 4.01 shuttle:  Wish he would of ran the 40, super impressive quickness times in the cone and shuttle, very impressive stuff and a standout vertical.  If he matches that will proven speed at the combine could climb into the 2nd round or be a firm 3rd rounder.

 

*David Long 4.45, 39.5 vert, 6.45 cone, 3.67 shuttle:  Very good quickness and change of direction ability no doubt, fast kid in a small space and decent 40 time as well with strong vertical.  

 

*Josh Oliver 4.63, 22 B, 34 vert :  In terms of power showed a good 40 and a decent bench.  Looks the part already, with some more work in the weight room in a pro setting could be an absolute beast.  

 

 

 

Some others who impressed:


N'Keal Harry 27 B, 38.5 vert  

Caleb Wilson 4.56,

Mike Weber 4.47  

Erick McCoy 4.89

Chris Lindstrom 4.91, 117 broad

Easton Stick 4.62, 33.5 vert, 118 broad, 6.65 cone, 4.05 shuttle

Alize Mack 4.7, 22 B, 120 broad

Iosua Opeta 5.02, 39 B

Chase Winovich 4.59, 6.49 cone, 4.11 shuttle

Josh Allen 4.63, 28 B, 7.15 cone, 4.23 shuttle

Ed Oliver 32 B, 36 vert, 120 broad

Quinnen Williams 4.83

Dexter Lawrence 5.05, 36 B

Albert Huggins 35 B

Gary Johnson 4.43, 121 broad

Cody Barton 4.64, 30 B, 6.9 cone, 4.03 shuttle, 11.47 L shuttle

Ty Summers 4.51, 27 B, 

Darnell Savage 4.36, 39.5

Darius West 4.39, 19 B,

Kris Boyd 4.45, 19 B, 4.08 shuttle

 

 

 

 

 

Disappointed at the combine:

 

Jachai Polite - Just numbers wise he did not impress, some people thought of him as this great athlete but he did not show that at the combine.  I was not surprised, I thought he was an overrated prospect to start with, and how he interviewed was apparently quite bad as well.  Will see if he can improve off the numbers, and he is super quick getting to the QB but surprised he did not even do the 3 cone or the 20 shuttle.  Is maybe not the athlete most thought and also could struggle big time in a 3/4 OLB position in coverage I feel.  

 

Will Grier - Dude missed throws constantly I thought, did not look comfortable and kind of shocked in the pass happy NFL of today a pass happy system in college actually affects the QBs performance.  Pretty shocked at how bad he has looked when at times this year he looked like a very good QB with good upside and improved from the season before.  Out of that comfort zone he just looked bad, will for sure drop past rounds 1 and 2 and probably be a 3rd to 5th round pick now.

 

Bryce Love - Why did he not run, would shut up some of the critics after his very sub par season, maybe he is still injured who knows.  Disappointed by his lack of performance or doing the drills but will see how his pro day is.  

 

Kyler Murray - Disappointed he did not run and disappointed he did not throw.  To say all he had to do was show up and be measured over 5-10, that is a joke, for a guy that 6 months ago was going to play baseball for his career, yeah I want him to throw the football with everyone else.  Maybe he wants some more time, will see how his pro day is but still would rather see him in this environment to be honest.

 

Mack Wilson -   Not sure why he did not run, would have been nice but is crazy hard competition with White and Bush, doubt Wilson has those type of 40 numbers.  Solid player but some had him as a 1st rounder and not sure I see that either.  Would have been nice to see him perform athletically.

 

Lil'Jordan Humphrey Texas WR JR - Bad 40 time from him, did not look as athletic as he did on the field to be quite honest, not sure if his game speed is faster and is clearly not a track type guy.  Surprised how unathletic he looked, was a 3rd or 4th rounder before, now is maybe more a 6th or 7th rounder.  Still like his upside but did not look like the athlete I thought he would have.  

 

 

 

Updated the 7 round mock shortly, and take out some more players as well and add a few.  

 

Biggest risers:


DK Metcalf Ole Miss WR RS SOPH
Garrett Bradbury NC State C SR
Drew Lock Missouri QB SR
Montez Sweat Miss State DE SR
Khalen Saunders Western Illinois DT SR

 

 

Biggest fallers:

Will Grier West Virginia QB SR (Unlike most he just simply has not looked good in the pre draft stuff at all, also was not a huge fan of him skipping the bowl game, a lot good that did for you.  He had extra time to prep and still looks bad in this setting)


Jaylon Ferguson La Tech DE SR (No major reason outside of his was not there so becomes easier to forget, will see what he does at his pro day)


Deionte Thompson Alabama RS JR (Apparently hurt his wrist before the combine, hurts him for sure not being able to perform)


Zach Allen Boston College DE SR (to his defense sure he might fall out of the 1st round with a slower 40 time but in terms of game tape and production he is a 1st rounder all the way, possible steal and a half with him if he drops to the 2nd round)

Allen will be this years Stephon Tuitt.  Tuitt had 1st round skills in a draft that was amazingly deep.  Fell to the 2nd for the Steelers.  Allen is going to be a very good 5-tech in the NFL.

I agree, the kid has outstanding game tape and is one heck of a football player.  Still could go 1st round but might drop without a sub 5 second 40.  But yeah ultimately not a huge deal, I had him top 20 at times this year just on game tape alone.

Kris Boyd 4.45, 19 B, 4.08 shuttle

 

 

 

 

 

Disappointed at the combine:

 

Jachai Polite - Just numbers wise he did not impress, some people thought of him as this great athlete but he did not show that at the combine.  I was not surprised, I thought he was an overrated prospect to start with, and how he interviewed was apparently quite bad as well.  Will see if he can improve off the numbers, and he is super quick getting to the QB but surprised he did not even do the 3 cone or the 20 shuttle.  Is maybe not the athlete most thought and also could struggle big time in a 3/4 OLB position in coverage I feel.  

 

Will Grier - Dude missed throws constantly I thought, did not look comfortable and kind of shocked in the pass happy NFL of today a pass happy system in college actually affects the QBs performance.  Pretty shocked at how bad he has looked when at times this year he looked like a very good QB with good upside and improved from the season before.  Out of that comfort zone he just looked bad, will for sure drop past rounds 1 and 2 and probably be a 3rd to 5th round pick now.

 

Bryce Love - Why did he not run, would shut up some of the critics after his very sub par season, maybe he is still injured who knows.  Disappointed by his lack of performance or doing the drills but will see how his pro day is.  

 

Kyler Murray - Disappointed he did not run and disappointed he did not throw.  To say all he had to do was show up and be measured over 5-10, that is a joke, for a guy that 6 months ago was going to play baseball for his career, yeah I want him to throw the football with everyone else.  Maybe he wants some more time, will see how his pro day is but still would rather see him in this environment to be honest.

 

Mack Wilson -   Not sure why he did not run, would have been nice but is crazy hard competition with White and Bush, doubt Wilson has those type of 40 numbers.  Solid player but some had him as a 1st rounder and not sure I see that either.  Would have been nice to see him perform athletically.

 

Lil'Jordan Humphrey Texas WR JR - Bad 40 time from him, did not look as athletic as he did on the field to be quite honest, not sure if his game speed is faster and is clearly not a track type guy.  Surprised how unathletic he looked, was a 3rd or 4th rounder before, now is maybe more a 6th or 7th rounder.  Still like his upside but did not look like the athlete I thought he would have.  

 

 

 

Updated the 7 round mock shortly, and take out some more players as well and add a few.  

 

Biggest risers:


DK Metcalf Ole Miss WR RS SOPH
Garrett Bradbury NC State C SR
Drew Lock Missouri QB SR
Montez Sweat Miss State DE SR
Khalen Saunders Western Illinois DT SR

 

 

Biggest fallers:

Will Grier West Virginia QB SR (Unlike most he just simply has not looked good in the pre draft stuff at all, also was not a huge fan of him skipping the bowl game, a lot good that did for you.  He had extra time to prep and still looks bad in this setting)


Jaylon Ferguson La Tech DE SR (No major reason outside of his was not there so becomes easier to forget, will see what he does at his pro day)


Deionte Thompson Alabama RS JR (Apparently hurt his wrist before the combine, hurts him for sure not being able to perform)


Zach Allen Boston College DE SR (to his defense sure he might fall out of the 1st round with a slower 40 time but in terms of game tape and production he is a 1st rounder all the way, possible steal and a half with him if he drops to the 2nd round)

You should have like fifty likes on this post just based upon the sheer depth you went to to compile numbers AND highlight good/bad performances. Better than CBS and ESPN garbage that only recaps two or three players, and usually just big names at that.

I think Caleb Wilson is going to be a 2nd-rounder after that 40 time. He's a great athlete with wide receiver traits and was very productive in college. Seeing just how fast he is solidified his standing.

I thought his vertical and cone would be a little better, along with his short shuttle.  But that is a good solid 40 time, is such a natural pass catching TE and had a monster season with pretty awful QB play.  Is a great streak TE who can go down the middle of the field and make big plays, is not really big and does not block all that well but in the right system could be a heck of a pass catching weapon.  But yeah is basically a WR playing TE which is not rare, gives him a leg up compared to if he was just a WR, he is more dangerous as a TE anyway.  

 

Looking at the TEs more Kaden Smith running a 4.95 40 is really bad also.  He is supposed to be a good athlete and pass catching TE, good hands for sure but wow that is a slow 40 time for a pass catching TE.  And is too bad CJ Conrad was sent home because of medical reasons, they found a problem at the combine and he could not participate, hopefully that is not a long term thing.   Also Jazz Ferguson at 6-5 227 so much taller than DK ran a 4.45 40 that is crazy good for someone so tall like him, very impressive showing and he could be a great mid round draft pick, former LSU player that had a good season at Northwestern St LA this past year and had a big game against A&M and did well.

Thanks but it is not that in depth, really should be more indepth but I did it kind of quickly.  Tried to highlight what stood out to me but was the same for others, and was not able to watch all the drills might go back and do more of that later on.  Did see the QB performances though or most of them and yeah Grier struggled and missed passes often.

Had this 7 round mock most of the year starting in or around May.  Tons changed over that time of course, a lot of players fell out after new players came on the scene.  Did a quick team mock draft with team needs included, the other ranking was not so dependent on team needs and just tried to rank the players.  But is hard to keep ones own opinions with so many mocks out there and ideas.  Biggest risers on with the start of all the pre draft work compared to a little under a year ago obviously are Q. Williams, K. Murray, C. Ford, A. Dillard, N. Adderley, C. Lindstrom, G. Bradbury, D. Henderson, J. Hollins, K. Saunders and E. McCoy I would say.  Murray is just assumed to go #1 but really is not worth the pick and some other players are clearly better than him, outside of the fact Rosen does not fit the offense the Cardinals might end up playing but will see what happens.  

Dexter Lawrence is getting very underrated I feel and TJ Hockenson is getting a little overrated if people talk of him being a top 10 pick.  OJ Howard was a better prospect and more athletic I thought and he was the 19th pick overall.  He is a good player no doubt and arguably the most complete TE in the draft but not sure I would spend a high pick on him.  Cody Ford is another getting a little overrated but I have him going to Minnesota because he has more ability to play OG and OT than other guys they could pick on the OL there who are mostly just tackles only.
